There are many things in life that I DON’T GET.

  • I don’t get U2
  • I don’t get Car hill Starts and reverse parking
  • I don’t get Beetroot or Cauliflower or Brussels Sprouts
  • I don’t get why Avatar was so popular and I certainly don’t get why you would start to make several sequels of it
  • I don’t get sewing
  • I don’t get why parents don’t get daily free chocolate as a pick me up
  • I don’t get why Captain Scarlett never ended up being as big as The Thunderbirds
  • I don’t get rhubard
  • I don’t get why the brilliant Stephen Fry has never been cast as James Bond
  • I don’t get baking
  • I don’t get how Princess Leia could suddenly fly in space
  • I don’t get why William Shatner never followed Ronald Reagan into the Whitehouse
  • I don’t get Brexit
  • I don’t get why anyone would vote for a political party led by Boris Johnson
  • I don’t get why DC never used the hit song Holding out for a Hero as the theme for Superman
  • I don’t get how people can read the 1000 odd pages of Stephen Kings ‘IT’ and honestly claim they have the faintest idea what is going on
  • I don’t get why how Alvin and the Chipmunks gets multiple movies yet the Penguins of Madagascar only get a solitary one
  • I don’t get Pop Tarts
  • And I certainly don’t get why a supermarket gluten free bread loaf is half the size and 6 times the price of a standard loaf

But I do get somethings. I get beauty when I see it. I definitely get why I stopped the car in this lane to take this photograph.

  1. 😄 Thank you on several of these, especially Avatar. My husband likes it, so I have learned to tolerate. But, I just don’t get it. Also, yes, why so much Alvin and so little Penguins??

  2. That is a lane that would be perfect for a stroll! The sky is always worth stopping for!

    I don’t get sprouts or Rhubarb or many of the other things on your list either, but Avatar is a good movie and I’ll thumb wrestle anyone who disagrees😝
    Definitely need more penguins and zero chipmunks!💌💌💌

  3. I recently discovered cauliflower with spices such as cumin – roasted cauliflower and spices is taking me to exciting places – in a culinary context of course!…

    ….but all of your other points are very important indeed!! Especially the one about the Penguins of Madagascar!!

  4. Here’s a few mild things I don’t get:
    Jazz. 🎷
    Maths and people who actually like maths.
    Waking up before dawn to go for a run.
    Going for a run. 🏃‍♀️
    Jogging at walking speed, I mean “Jogging” in itself just isn’t right, right?
    Why some don’t just buy themselves a stash of yummy treats 🍫 as a daily pick me up or buy the flowers they like the look of. 💐
    Those who search for perfection or wait for the perfect day to use that thing they’ve been saving to use. 🍸
    Doing things according to priorities on a day off.
    But I totally get:
    Crisp sandwiches with a mug of Tizer.

  5. I dont understand mayonnaise, or potato salad. I dont understand why gluten free food is so expensive yet so limited. I dont understand why people choose to make others feel bad. I dont understand much
    Thank you for this post. Uplifting yet so true ahah!
    Haven’t seen penguins of madagascar but think I’m going to have to now lol

  6. Love your list, and where do you come up with these clever posts? Let’s see never was into Avatar. I do not get pop tarts.. Just full of sugar and they made me sick once, lol. I do agree with you on stopping the car for a beautiful photo. Guilty of that my friend. I’m still sm long and giggling like a little girl over this post.😂

  7. I would love chocolate as a daily pick me up! Really interesting read, as I feel we all are realizing everyday there’s less and less we understand.. I am a first time reader, and I want to say, I am sorry for your loss, and wish you well in navigating all you must and all you want to.
    Stay Safe&Smart
